Collin County goes 'Platinum' on government transparency
For the fifth straight year, the
Texas Comptroller has cited Collin County for its efforts in government transparency with a Leadership Circle Platinum Award. This is the first year the Comptroller recognized local government for "exceeding" open government disclosures on their websites.
Collin County has received the Comptroller's top awards since the Leadership Circle awards launched in 2010, and was the first county government in the nation to post its checkbook online for public scrutiny in 2008.
This year's award goes beyond posting of budgets, financial reports and check registers online, to include detailed summary information online about current bonded debt and repayment. You can see our expanded government
